NBA News: Player News and Updates for 11/12/15
NBA Player Updates 11/12: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 12, 2015
After a very busy Wednesday, the NBA is easing things up tonight with just three games on the schedule. We’re in for a big weekend, though, so make sure you get rested up before tomorrow night. In the meantime, let’s take our daily look at some of the key stats and players in the news.
Knicks-Hornets: The Knicks haven’t quite figured out how to close games just yet, as evidenced by a 93-95 loss in Charlotte last night. New York was outscored 26-14 in the fourth quarter, spurred by Cody Zeller’s layup with just 0.6 seconds remaining. The Knicks’ Kristaps Porzingis nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that was ruled too late to count, and the Hornets secured the win.
Carmelo Anthony logged 29 points, while Porzingis put up another double-double on 10 points and 15 rebounds. New York posted 17 turnovers.

Pacers-Celtics: Paul George spurred the Pacers to a 102-91 victory last night in Boston, logging 26 points and 10 rebounds. He’s been a scoring machine lately, and had averaged 31.7 PPG in his previous three.
C.J. Miles put up 17 points here, while Monta Ellis chipped in with 13. The Pacers have now won five of their last six outings.
Boston’s Achilles heel here was their 3-point shooting, which finished just 4-of-24.
Clippers-Mavericks: We had a big Western Conference game last night in Dallas, with the Mavericks topping their rival Clippers 118-108 in DeAndre Jordan’s return to the city.
Dirk Nowitzki (31 points) and Wesley Matthews (25 points) pitched in season-highs in scoring while the crowd booed Jordan at every opportunity. He had nine points and 11 rebounds with a minus-23 mark while he was on the floor.
Warriors-Grizzlies: Can anyone stop the Warriors? It hasn’t happened yet, as the team stayed unbeaten with a 100-84 victory over the Grizzlies in Memphis last night.
Stephen Curry logged 28 points and Andre Iguodala managed 20 of his own. The Warriors are now 9-0, which matches the franchise’s best start in history at 9-0. That’s a mark that has stood for 55 years, way back in 1960.
Curry put up another uncharacteristically dry mark from 3-point range at 3-of-10 overall, but Golden State still got the win.
